The right to receive official development assistance (ODA) has been linked to a definition that relates “developing” with certain levels of gross domestic product per capita, irrespective of transformative needs, such as exemplified in the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. Increasing GDP levels lead to a growing number of developing countries “graduating” to the status of non-ODA receivers. International development cooperation has been focused on a rather narrow understanding of development which is now surpassed by the need to engage in universal transformation processes which requires a strengthening and reinvention of international cooperation. In this chapter, Imme Scholz (DIE) and Elizabeth Sidiropoulos (SAIIA) discuss the following questions with Andreas Proksch and Juliane Kolsdorf (GIZ): What are the overarching issues determining world politics and who are the old and the new actors driving them? What is the impact of these global shifts on international cooperation, especially development cooperation? Of what relevance are roles, status and categories and what is the impact of changes in positions and relations? What challenges face multilateralism and what ways exist to maintain and renew strategic partnerships and shared values?
